Wasn't there some issue with Miyamura's health? Maybe they are downplaying/changing Asuka/making it up as they go along because of that?

I'd like to call troll job/horrible rumor on this, but skipping thru the Japanese Reichu has up of the 2.0 poster makes me think otherwise. But even if this information is true, bitching about it won't do anything (I have a tendency to complain about things like this).

I know that Rebuild is a different beast (hah) from the original series, but what reason would that have to change Asuka's name if Rei's* and Shinji's are kept (besides the similarities of Rei and Asuka now having destroyer-ship names)? Also, since when do the CHILDREN have ranks? Asuka being a captain?! That's just... WAT?! In honsou's words, Asuka's going to have one hell of a power trip. This is gonna be fun, as long as Asuka maintains the same personality despite the last name change. >=3

*Now I'm starting to wonder if there's something to Gendo's original surname in Rebuild being Ayanami instead of Rokubungi. Also, maybe for a huge mindfuck, Mari's last name will have a "Soryu" in it?

It's hard what with my inner fangirl, but I'm really trying to wait for all of Rebuild to be released before judging it.

Mr. Tines: Yes there was an issue with Miyamura's health but according to Brik, the problem Miyamura had wasn't extremely serious.

Also, because I have some time, here are Asuka's words along with Mari and Shinji's exchange from the 2.0 poster (thank you Peraperakun and Rikaichan on Firefox! ;_; ):

Asuka: That's right. I'm laughing.
---
Shinji: Of course, I'd rather be laughed at.

Mari: If you continue to be so timid, then nothing will be fun.

It too blurry to tell what the heck is that but it looks like Eva Unit 02. I hope we will see some more stuff soon by the end of the week.

Yeah sorry about the blur, it looks like a fan took it with a cellphone.

She's laughing at all the Eva fans and their outrage about the changes.
She be trolling us all.

And at the photo...
That picture really appears like it was originally at a much lower resolution, and then blown up for no adequately explained reason...

****EDIT****

This seems like it'd be closer to the right size to be intelligible.

Yeah. I figured the image was blown up when I just saw it now.

Interesting changes with Asuka concerning the last name and all. These are the kind of drastic changes I want! Funnily enough looking at that sketchy Eva 02 photo you can tell it does have horns and they may be more prominent than at first thought.

And is that the Power plug on its back or is Eva 02 the Elephant Man?

P.S. Looking at that review and Babelfishing it, only thing I can fully surmise is it looks like the trailer features the Utada Hikaru "Fly Me to the Moon" single again.

P.S.S. The movie website has put the new poster up in lieu of the old one with all the kids sitting around for a group photo.

My attempt to make sense of a mangled google translation using HARD WORK AND GUTS
(IE: my limited knowledge of Japanese and my love of Eva)
THIS ALMOST CERTAINLY CONTAINS ERRORS!
(but it's better than nothing)
Badly mangled translation of this blog entry wrote:I have seen the trailer.

It was awesome.
It gave me chills.

What I remember:

What happened in the trailer
Like with the First Trailer, the Background Music was “Fly Me to the Moon” [Utada Hikaru]

It was all new animation.

I think the front of UNIT-05?

UNIT-00 [yellow] dashed and did a long jump.
UNIT-03 taken over by an ANGEL?

A missile hitting UNIT-02’s horns

A shot of Asuka

A shot of Kaji

Cut to a CG shot of the streets
Students walking to UNIT-03

A mysterious and suffering Cyber-Character (saiba-kyara) ((Something about a green device that is on someone’s head))

The first Evas are often out

I saw a red line going to the top of the collar of Shinji’s uniform.
Maybe it’s not a uniform?

And

I apologize if that’s not the order it happened in.
The place was overwhelming, so my memory could be incorrect.

It was as long as the first trailer (The Fly Me to the Moon one).

Read one of my previous summaries, you see two eyes. (I have no idea what “you see two eyes” might mean)

That poster wrote:バチカン条約 第13条第1項
The Vatican Treaty, Article 13, Paragraph 1

EDIT: Also, thinking about the poster's mention of 3I... Wouldn't it be awesome if Third Impact occurred some time as early as 2.0 instead of having it occur near the end?

EDIT AGAIN: The poster mentions the "Nebuchadnezzar Key". Moeeeee!

Seconded. Also, I see no shoulder pylons.
Neon Genesis Evangelion (from the Greek Ευανγελιον, meaning "Gigantic robots piloted by mentally ill children")
Eva Facts:
-Gendo's final silenced line to Ritsuko was "I'm going to shoot you now."
-Nagisa Kaworu kills a kitten every time you masturbate.
-Kaji's first and last name was Kaji
